Description

Express Winemakers L'Orange 2021

Light amber in the glass. The L'Orange 2021 is fruity and funky on the nose. It has a very generous palate with notes of ripe melon, mango, passionfruit and peach. With a touch of sweetness and acidity, it goes well with food and is a bottle that impresses.

A single vineyard wine from a little organic joint in Frankland River, 96% Riesling and the rest Semillon. Fermented on skins for a week before pressing off to a mix of stainless steel, old oak and concrete. In your face tannin, and acid and uniquely distinctive characters of white flowers and oranges.

Express Winemakers are about producing wines that are uniquely expressive of their origins. They currently lease and manage four small vineyards in the Mount Barker and Porongurup sub-regions of Western Australia’s Great Southern. The cool climate and ancient decomposed granite soils of the Great Southern lends itself to low yielding vines producing high quality fruit, which is necessary to make expressive minimal intervention wines.

"Slurpy orange wine, very refreshing, strongly mandarin focused with excellent ribbons of dry, powdery tannin lending shape and a click and pucker. Lighter than expected but delivers good intensity and yet holds its thirst quenching nature nicely. Frisky thing. Go in!
